Internal parasite control

One of the biggest challenges facing sheep and goat producers is how to effectively control internal parasites in their flocks and herds. Gastro-intestinal parasites are especially a problem in warm, moist climates. On this page, links are arranged alphabetically according to subject matter: anthelmintics, anthelmintic resistance, diagnostics, FAMACHA©, Five Point Check©, general sites, immunity, internal parasite control, and refugia. Alternative methods of parasite control can be found on the Alternative parasite control page.

Good FAMACHA©  color
The FAMACHA© system can be used to make selective
deworming decisions (in situations where the barber
pole worm is the primary parasite).
